Most Overrated Black Celebrities

The Top Ten

1 Beyonce Knowles Beyonce Knowles Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter, is an American singer and actress, who started out in the popular pop/r&b girl group Destiny's Child. They had multiple top 5 hits such as "No, No, No", "Say My Name", "Bills, Bills, Bills", "Survivor", "Independent Women", "Bootylicious", and "Jumpin', Jumpin" from more.

American media tries so hard to make her a Queen and it looks ridiculous. She would be nothing without family support and countless commercial. She is ZERO personality who copies other artists all the time. Nothing she does is her own. What a FAKE! - Magnolia

She's beautiful, can sing and dance. But don't force me to make her out to be a great songwriter (i.e., "Bootilscious", "Check On It", "Upgrade U") or a serious actress. If she wasn't pretty, we wouldn't be interested.

She is an ugly fat beast that can't sing without autotune. Her boulder thighs that spread open are vile.

Pretentious, ugly, people only like her because shes "female and black! 1! Slay me my kween! 1! "

She's pretty... But she just has an nice accent when she "sings" and did I forget to say that she's pretty? She was better when she first came out, but now, I don't like her stuff at all. It seems like she's in the illuminati and she is an AVERAGE SINGER.
